Generously sized ganaches, crunchy nougat, velvety truffles… Any attempt to describe Pierre Hermé’s products unfailingly degenerates into a rapturous ode to gluttony. Hermé donned his first chef’s hat at the age of 14, and trained with such renowned artisans as Gaston Lenôtre before opening his own shop on Rue Bonaparte in 2001. Though you could buy anything and walk away happy, the macaroons are a standout: try the pink macaroon, concocted from an Iranian recipe that balances sweet and bitter flavours to perfection.

If you're suitably inspired (and of course you will be) you can learn from the master and create your own macarons at this masterclass

In my opinion, Pierre Hermé has the tastiest macarons in the city! The range of flavours are always spot on - from classic like Pistachio, Salted Caramel, and Rose to combination flavours like Olive Oil & Vanilla. I've always found the combination flavours to be quite unique. They might sound strange, making you hesitant in trying them but it's worth it. He clearly knows his flavours well, as they seem to work each time. 

I like that there are several branches around the city, so it's easily accessible wherever you might be wandering around. It makes for a great afternoon snack, dessert, and even leftovers for breakfast (though I highly doubt you'll have leftovers). 

Always have liked their range of macarons and I will always come back to buy some each time I'm in Paris!
